Every blogger eventually begins to understand that guest posting is the in-thing! It is cool, hip and it gets you back links from good sites with a high Page rank in return for a post. There can be whole new post that lists out the advantages of guest posting. But for now, in this post, we will focus on how as a blogger you can get more guest post writers to your blog.
Get Your Blog Listed
I cannot imagine any blog on “blogging tips” that would not have an article on the list of blog to guest post. These lists usually list out a number of blogs categorized by Page rank where an interested blogger can guest post on. And most of the writers who have written these articles are looking to expand their list. So you can point out to them that your blog is open for guest posting and has a “n” page rank. Most bloggers would willing include you. Else, you can always leave a comment in the comments section where you can mention that your blog accepts guest posts as well.
Invite other bloggers
This method to get guest bloggers is pretty much about common sense. You can always approach bloggers who guest post a lot and ask them to guest post on your blog. It is all about pitching your blog well in the email or contact form of the person you are contacting. You can include your subscription numbers, traffic stats etc. Basically, whatever it would take to get a blogger interested in writing for your blog.
And yes, I almost forgot to mention, when you do this – it really helps to have a good Page rank.
Ann Smarty runs this forum. You see, her name suggests she is smart. At the MyBlogGuest forum one can submit a topic on which you are looking for guest bloggers for your blog. You should also include the details/rules about guest blogging on your blog. It is a very popular forum and many bloggers who want to guest post usually go through this forum to find guest posting opportunities. Putting up your blog there can help you get more guest bloggers for your blog.
Make It Easy for Guest Posters
This is perhaps the most important part. I hate blogs where I need to first send in Guest post request to the blog owner whether I can guest post or not. Then he/she would reply to me with a gargantuan list of rules on guest posting on their blog. It really sucks and I personally would not guest post on any blog that would get me that tired. In case of this blog, we makes it really simple for guest posters – no need to ask first, just submit your article directly. Frankly, it was one of the main reasons why I suggest you chose this blog over many others for a guest post!
Hope you got a lot out of this post. Do let me know your views below on this. Thanks!
